Mar-15-11  ForeverYoung: Amazing work by Larsen starting with the surprising ... Bxe5!, surround the "d" pawn and putting away this opponent beautifully!
Oct-08-12  Everett: I do not see the finish after 44.Qxa3, does it begin with 44..Nd4?

Yes, White can't avoid the loss of his bishop as 44.Qxa3 Nd4 45.Bb2 loses to 45...Ne2+ 46.Kh2 (46.Kf1 Nxg3+) Qxf2+ 47.Kh3 Ng1+ 48.Kg4 Qf5#.

Oct-08-12  Everett: Thank you, Sastre. With your help I see it now.
Feb-22-15  nikrj: Wonderful game by Larsen! He was aromantic that was always seeking for the exceptions!

  woldsmandriffield: 14..Bxe5 & the follow-up 15..d4 are uncanny moves.
